Candy. Cakes. A Cup of Coffee Cake (in Under Five Minutes) I don’t love chocolate.

A Cup of Coffee Cake (in Under Five Minutes)

BLASPHEMY I KNOW! It just doesn’t do it for me, what can I say? I do, however, love me some cinammon. And some crumbles. And some crumb-topping, if you will. But okay, I don’t always feel like making a giant coffee cake and eating it for three days straight until it’s gone. So I messed around with ingredients, a measuring spoon, and a microwave, to see if I could create a crumbly, cinnamony coffee cake in a cup that could be made in a microwave in about five minutes at 11 p.m. while i watched The Notebook for the 5,000th time (hey girl, don’t even try to pretend you don’t love Ryan Gosling, I won’t hear it).

Get my five minute cup-of-coffee-cake recipe after the jump… While you’re at your microwave, head on over to Jaime’s Lazy Late Night Cooking Corner on our YouTube channel for more microwave treats like, Single Serve Cinnamon Roll, Rice Krispy Treat, Blueberry Cobbler, and Strawberry Shortcake for Two. Well, first you’ll need a cup. Add a tablespoon of butter. Samoa Bundt Cake. I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say that this is the greatest cake I have ever made.

Samoa Bundt Cake

Not only does it look like a hilariously over-sized Girl Scout Cookie, it also tastes insanely amazing. Practically the same as said cookie. Samoas are my absolute favorite cookie period. Caramel plus coconut is a win in my book, and the chocolate and shortbread are just added bonuses. The idea for this cake was actually The Hubs idea. Now I’m not going to lie, this took nearly all day to make, but on the flip side, the people I fed it to responded with cheering and hugs.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cake  I don’t have the data to back it up, but I would venture to say that peanut butter and chocolate has to be one of the most popular flavor combinations out there.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cake 

Surely it’s in the top ten. It’s certainly in my top few. The advantage of that kind of popularity is that the baking world has no shortage of recipes for us fans to try. I don’t imagine I’ll exhaust the possibilities any time soon. The cake’s flavor is not overwhelmingly peanut butter-y. This cake is denser than most, making me think of it as a snack cake more than a full-out dessert. Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cake Ingredients.
